In ancient times, when so much was unknown and mysterious, unexplainable phenomena were seen as the wills of gods. Hence, rituals in hopes of communicating with the heavenly deities were created. With masks and dances, our ancestors tried to imitate the likeness of each god, hoping to receive their blessings and to be rid of illness and disasters. This is the origin of the Chinese NUO Opera.
Masks are the most visually impactful element in NUO opera. For ancient Chinese, NUO masks are the instruments to communicate with and transform into deities. When the performer put on a specific mask, he was one with the god, wielding the same heavenly powers. In an enigmatic ancient era, being able to act in god’s name in the face of uncertainties and fear was the source of courage and strength people needed.
Though time runs by, the constant pursuit for a better life has never changed for mankind. As the metaverse grows, TraditioNow would love to contribute to such development and introduce our first renaissance NFT project — [NUO · Dancing to God 向神跳舞，儺出好戲]. The ancient myth from China has now entered a new chapter with us in the metaverse.
Under the NUO project are 2,006 NFTs. Each was created based on a NUO mask and on the powers the deity wields, such as [開山猛將General Mountain · Endless Energy], [楊戩Yang Jian · Vision & Foresight], [雷公Thunder God · Fairness & Justice], [藥王King of Medicine · Health & Vitality], [花王聖母Goddess of Fecundity · Flourishing Prosperity], and more. As the mint for NUO NFTs begins, the gods in NUO Opera are summoned once more onto this world. Each NUO NFT owner shall not only be blessed by the gods with bliss and protection, but also gain access to exclusive resources and unlock unique experiences both online and offline. This will no doubt be an exhilarating journey for the TN community and partners.
